The Itch Never Goes Away



So little rectangular pieces of cardboard managed to drag me back to them.  I couldn't fight them off.

For years, I had the cards put away in storage, without much thought given to them.  But then something clicked.  Maybe it was that time I was caught in the YouTube whirlpool and ended up watching some box breaks.  Maybe it is that twinge I get every time I pass the card aisle in Wal-Mart.  Maybe it was the fact that every time I go on Ebay, the algorithm likes to shove auctions of baseball cards in my face.

Shameless Plug: Here I Go Again...

...with another shameless advertising plug for some of my cards on COMC.  This post will focus on the cards I have for sale from the year 1987.

But first, let's set the mood with a super smash-hit from '87:

Such a memorable video with the sensual Tawny Kitaen showing off her flexibility on top of a couple of Jaguars (the cars, not the big cats or football players from Jacksonville).

Ok, onto the cards:

Shameless Plug: The Oldest I Have

There is a ton of vintage cards listed on COMC for sale but unfortunately, I am not the one selling them.  So in this shameless plug I am listing the oldest cards I do have for sale on the site.

This 1969 Deckle Edge card is the oldest card I have listed on COMC.  Isn't this the most beautifully centered card you've ever seen? Ok, not so much.

Shameless Plug: Randy Johnson

So I have over 1000 cards listed on COMC for sale and I figured I will do some shameless advertising on my blog.  So for today's plug, how about a few cards of the Big Unit himself, Randy Johnson.

*Clicking the pics will open COMC in a new window* wink,wink, nudge, nudge

1992 Diamond Kings
1992 was the first year Randy led the league in strikeouts.  He also led the league in batters hit by pitch that season.  Ouch.

One Blaster of 2012 Topps Update

I figured it was about time I contributed another post to my blog.  So how about a little post of this 2012 Topps Update blaster I picked up this afternoon.

Wow, look at all the gold.  I don't think I have ever received this many serial numbered parallels in a blaster box before.  I also got two packs worth of the Walmart blue border cards but no need to show them here.
